Did You Know?

When Batjac, John Wayne's production company, needed completion funds for The Alamo (1960), it borrowed the money from United Artists. The Batjac film library was used as collateral for the loan. Making "McClintock" profitably for U-A allowed Batjac to reclaim control of the films.See more »

A western film that combines great humor, some action, and the eternal battle of the sexes out west, 10 January 1999
Author: Mickey-2 from Front Royal, VA

"McLintock", released in 1963, was a film that gave the Duke a chance to simply play a role for laughs, and let the story take care of itself. Paired with long-time screen leading lady Maureen O'Hara, the two manage to play their roles to the hilt, and the viewer can simply enjoy.

John Wayne is G. W. McLintock, a wealthy rancher that is looking to enjoy what his years of hard work have earned him--money, major spread, cattle, respect, etc. What is missing, however, is his wife, Katherine, played by Maureen O'Hara. Two years ago, without any advance warning, Kate split from the McLintock ranch and headed eastward, taking their daughter with her. Now, the daughter is returning from college, and Kate is returning, as well, determined to see that Becky goes back with her. G. W. is going to do his best to see that Becky stays with him.

The film's comedy sequences features a wild fist fight taking place at a mud slide, eventually, all the major participants end up in a slide down the mud, yes, even G. W. and Kate, and at the end of the film, a wild chase between G. W. and Kate, that ends up with a spanking being applied to Kate's backside. Ultimately, the fighting McLintocks become the peaceful duo, and the fireworks come to an end.
